Local dance pop-phenoms Madaila are playing a big Halloween gig — dubbed Madaila: the Scream — this Saturday, October 31, at the ECHO Lake Aquarium and Science Center in Burlington. In advance of that blowout bash, which also includes performances from Alpenglow, LuxDeluxe and Disco Phantom, the band recently released a new video for "I Don't Want to Rest." And, much like their previous forays in celluloid, it's a hoot.
Directed by Mike Mooney and shot by Tim Bradley — with some magnificent aerial footage by Total Production Designs, to boot — the woodsy vid boasts the highest production value of any Madaila short to date. It also has the strongest narrative thread of any of their previous videos. Think Lord of the Flies crossed with Monty Python & the Holy Grail, add a hint of old-time Baptist revivalism and you're in the neighborhood. Also, neon face paint. And glow sticks.
